Changes from the Show[edit | edit source]

Chapter 9: Weiss: Part Two The Hind[edit | edit source]

  • Klein has brown hair and eyes, but in the panel in Snowbound Forest and the remaining pages, he has white hair and blue eyes.
  • Weiss' shoes of her occasional attire differs to her shoes in Volume 4 episodes "Tipping Point" and "Punished".
  • The newly introduced location Snowbound Forest seems uncharacteristically warm and doesn't seem to match the cold, icy tundra climate Solitas has in the show.

Chapter 10: Ruby: Part Three The Garden[edit | edit source]

  • In Ruby's flashback, Ozpin's eyes are depicted in blue instead of brown.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • One of the pages on the headline says "Midnight" even though it's in the day time.
  • In Chapter 10, when Ruby encounter some individuals in the Garden maze, it consists of red, white, black, and yellow. It presumably symbolizes the colors of Team RWBY or the main colors use in the show.
